A large number of people belonging to CITU, CPI(M) and others gathered near the Visvesvaraya statue in Mandya and raised slogans against the Union government. Police took 50 people into their custody to prevent any untoward incident. Security has been stepped up in the district and police took out a flag march on main streets of the city.
